COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Summer Solstice Seasonal Ale is not just your average summer seasonal. This unique copper colored ale is smooth, malty, and lightly sweet, with a delicate hint of spice for that oh-so-drinkable, extra velvety flavor.

Poured from a can. Reddish copper color with substantial head. Fruity aroma. Creamy texture. Weird flavor, almost like cherries. Not what I expected from a summer beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Drank straight from the bottle. No glass available. Sweet aroma. Can really taste the caramel. Rather bland otherwise. Not a favorite Anderson Valley beer.

12oz can, served in a pint glass. Decent summer ale - not that much spice as advertised.

ellolovey (441) - Georgia, USA - JUL 5, 2014
12 oz can. Pours a deep copper with a thick frothy head. Dissipates quickly leaving no lacing. Aroma of vanilla, caramel, and sweet malts. Very creamy texture. Pretty smooth. A little boring on the palate. Taste of wood, caramel, toffee, and vanilla. All low key and blending into one taste. Just blah

Pours tea color with a Caramalt aroma and low hop profile. Head does not persist. The palate is huge caramel malt forward and very sweet. I thought this was a beer in the cream ale style, but not this one. Tastes like a caramel flavored herbal cough drop. Overall, this beers leaves me wanting something else. Canít believe itís priced at $11 a six-pack!

Pours a deep copper from a bottle with a nice white head. Aroma is malt and honey. Medium mouthfeel with a nice earthy taste on the tongue. Has a nice clean honey- and caramel-based finish. Iím a huge fan of honey so this beer really hits the spot.
